Substitute Andrea Borg was among the scorers in comfortable home win for the second string.
The Peterborough United reserves recorded a 5-2 victory over their Newport County counterparts in the latest league fixture which was played behind closed doors at the ABAX Stadium.
Youngster Andrea Borg wrapped the victory with a close-range header to cap a fine cameo appearance with Andrew Hughes netting twice against his former club either side of the break.
The visitors had initially levelled through Momodou Touray and pulled within a goal at 3-2 when substitute Lewis Collins tapped home from close-range.
Posh had a whole host of chances in the 90 minutes with Taylor, Tom Nichols and Chris Forrester all going close while at the other end, the second half trialist goalkeeper made a smart stop to deny substitute Laurent Ngunjoh. Newport also clipped the top of the crossbar direct from a corner kick.
The hosts also missed a penalty - Morgan Penfold seeing his spot-kick saved by Rhys Davies after the impressive Borg had been upended in the box following a mazy dribble.
Posh: Trialist (sub Trialist), Hart, Freestone, Goode, Hughes, Chettle, Forrester (sub Trialist), Inman (sub Nabi), Nicholson (sub Borg), Nichols (sub Penfold), Taylor.
